A Florida husband accused of killing his eight-months pregnant mistress was reportedly angry that he gave her money for an abortion but she never got one.

Jose Soto-Escalera was arrested on Friday for two counts of first-degree murder after the body of pregnant 23-year-old Tania Wise was found along the side of a desolate stretch of road in St Lucie County last month.

Soto-Escalera - Woman - Wise - Father - Baby

Soto-Escalera, who is married to another woman, had been romantically involved with Wise and was the father to her unborn baby, which she planned to name Josiah. Police said Wise was one week away from giving birth when she was murdered.

According to an arrest affidavit released on Monday, Soto-Escalera wanted Wise to get an abortion and reportedly became angry when she didn't.

Soto-Escalera - Wise - Pregnancy - Money - Man

Soto-Escalera said he gave Wise $500 to terminate the pregnancy and she gave the money to another man she was seeing, the New York Post reports.

'Wise did not get an abortion and Escalera was mad because Wise "played him",' the affidavit stated.

Police - Soto-Escalera - Wise - DNA - Father

Police said Soto-Escalera initially denied he was sexually involved with Wise but DNA proved he was the father of the unborn baby.
